Know How to Align Objects

Written on

Hi everyone, and welcome back! I'm Alex the PixTeller chief troublemaker and today we'll have some fun because I will show you how to align objects with our graphic maker. It's super easy and It won't take too much of your time. So let's get going!

First thing's first, in order to efficiently go through today's tutorial, I will use premade design template.

USE design

Now, if we look closely at this design, we have some elements like: 2 images, one shape, and 2 text elements. Did you spot them? Great.


To easily show you how to align objects, we'll open our photo editor and start from scratch, so I will tear down the design by randomly moving all the elements. It looks crazy, right? But, trust me, it will make more sense this way and it's going to be so simple for you to follow. So let's get to it!

Reposition the elements

The best way to perfectly align any element, is to use the top menu alignment section, just above the picture.

Now, select the images, right here, and then click on the middle and right buttons of the first one, and the middle and left buttons on the second one. Got it? Cool.

Position the Images

Next, to put the shape in the middle of the screen, select it and click on the middle and center buttons. I will do the same for the text. Done!

Position the shape

For the signature text, I will simply drag it and use the guidelines for a perfect alignment. If I want, I can set the text to be aligned in the Center in its container, as I'm doing in my example.

Let's play some more because it gets better and so will you. I want to align the shape to the right, and the text in the middle of the new position of the shape.

If you want an alternative and interesting way to align an element, just use the position input.

Position using coordinates

As you can see here, you have different options for the alignment part of the graphic editor. You can continue playing with the options or you can save the design if you are all done. Keep in mind that the alignment section from the top and the alignment guidelines are super simple to use, and they will help you in your work.

That's all for now, so I will go and save my design. The final outcome should look something like this. Great job, everyone!
